Kari's Kave: Killer Temps Kicking my Butt

First off, I have been under the weather, so I am just now announcing the winners of Barbra Annino's Stacy Justice Mysteries Giveaway.

Jeanne Schutts, Anna Phegley, Karen Locke, Penny and Vickie

The winners have been contacted and Barbra has the list as well. Congrats ladies!

Now back to me :-)

One minute it's 60 degrees, and the next it's 11 BELOW zero. How is that possible? It's driving me crazy and messing with my system. I normally get the flu shot, but this year I didn't. And wouldn't you know it, this has to be one of the worst seasons ever for the flu in our neck of the woods.

Okay, so I didn't get the flu yet....but I did get the stomach flu.

NOT FUN!

I can take just about anything, but throwing up is horrendous. I have tight deadlines and so much to do. How am I supposed to get anything done? And I have 4 kids. Someone is always sick. Ugh. Not to mention everything falls apart when Mom is sick. I am finally better, but so far behind.

Lesson learned. Build in time when planning deadlines for crazy winters like this one and sick days.

Grrr...

So tell me, how do you handle being sick and meeting deadlines?

I have had a touch of the stomach flu - more stomach ache and queasiness than anything with some vomiting. Now I have a respiratory virus that I caught from my grandkids. I don't think it's the full blown flu, but it has made me lose a lot of work days.

Argh!! Get better.

Argh is right. You get better, too, Liz. Stupid flu season ;)
